A local businessman is recovering from injuries sustained when he fell from a tree stand.
Louie Payne, who owns Arrowhead Archery & BBQ, was hunting with a friend in Hardin County on Oct. 16. He was cinching a safety strap on the tree stand, when it snapped. He fell about 25-feet, breaking four ribs and vertebrae.
He was transported to University of Louisville Hospital where he underwent surgery.
According to a family friend, Payne is moving his arms and legs, and is in good spirits. He will undergo physical therapy at Frazier Rehab.
